Ubuntu Touch Developer Proposes 64-bit (ARM64) Images of Ubuntu for Phones

Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system needs to use the drivers from 64-bit versions of the Android OS, as such John McAleely proposes the usage of 64-bit Android BSPs (Board Support Packages) withing Ubuntu Touch, either by building a 64-bit (ARM64) image or by using 64-bit Android in such a way that it will be restricted to only the container on which it is hosted, while the rest of the Ubuntu Touch image remains untouched.
